Our mission is to foster and support LGBTQ+ communities

through social justice in the performing arts.

"National Queer Theater is a gift to the those who believe the arts are the most valuable vehicle to change.  They are opening up the world to Americans about the struggle of LGBTQ people around this planet.  The stories they share through art are powerful, mesmerizing and urgently needed to be told. This is an amazing group and deserves all of our support." 

David Mixner, Human Rights Activist, Author, and Performer
